of telegraphing this week from mr. romney, that maybe he will put some details into his economic talk. he's started to float some new ideas about taxes that he never floated before. my question is whether or not he thinks the right place to unveil those is in a debate setting. surprise the president with something he's never said before or if he wants to save that stuff for a more controlled environment. that will tell us as much about his temperament and his strategy as it will about his plans. let me bring in lawrence o'donnell, chris. lawrence is in the spin room tonight, which i think has yet to begin to spin. lawrence, what do you think the expectations are on both sides tonight? >> reporter: well, rachel, in this room, there are a lot of $10,000 bets going on behind me about what the president is going to say tonight and what mitt romney is going to say tonight. i think the rules actually favor president obama because there are almost no rules. they are going to do two-minute statements, they're each going to get two minutes at the beginning of the subjects that jim leherer will int
. they say, yes, yes, the polls show them losing ohio, but their internal romney polls show mr. romney specially tied in ohio. at least they show romney inside the margin of error in ohio. but again, they are not releasing this magical internal polling data. they are saying that's what it says. kind of like the summary of mitt romney's tax returns. if it's true they have internal polling data doing great in ohio, just in the interest of their donors, shouldn't they release those numbers? this isn't a magic thing. this isn't a hypothetical thing. in a real poll, which we can see the data for, we can see not only that it in ohio, president obama is up by eight, we can see why president obama is up by eight in ohio. that "washington post" poll out today has other data in it including the fact that 36% of all ohio voters say they have been contacted by the obama campaign. that contacted by the campaign number is seven points lower in term ls of the romney campaign. the obama campaign is doing it better. they are talking to more voters in ohio. that's making a difference. the hill today rep
in the polls after the paul ryan pick and the cotiasnt t romney campaign has stumbled repeatedly. yet mr. romney, who is losing by five or more points in iowa, colorado, wisconsin, michigan, ohio, florida and virginia, sees blue skies ahead. askehow he intended to turn his campaign ound, mr. romney esneturnaround.s," ,t and romney surrogates were out over the weekend blaming the liberal media for the campaign's troubles. the press didn't treat ronald reagan and george w. bush any less unfairly, and both men managed not onlyo win the presencyutge re-elected. mr. romney would do better to focus more on reducing his unforcedrrors and less on the fourth estate's political bias. ifhining about the liberal media was a winning strategy for republicans, newtingrich wou be t mi" well, and newt gingrich is a great example -- i don't mean to go back there -- a great example of the problem we're talking about here. because -- >> no. >> -- no, instead of stepping forward and separating himself from this candidate, he somehow, becausof his party -- at distraction.. >> it is. >> i'm talking about the p
doesn't have a plan and now it is the time to explain it. mr. romney, you have an hour and a half to explain it. >> jennifer: that's what the president says. we have time explain it. oh, that would be so perfect. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: so mitt romney is claiming out of his mouth that he is going to -- he -- i think he said -- was going to be fact checking the president during the debates, real time? >> maybe he has a little something in his ear -- >> that didn't work very well it didn't. >> jennifer: describe the fact-checking experience in a presidential campaign during the debate. >> i think -- look what you have got of course out there is a lot of people tweeting and folks commenting and all of that going on outside. but he is not going to have a lot of notes and stuff with facts on them, i don't think. plus this president -- if he is not anything, he is careful. you are not going to see coming from barack obama a lot of crazy numbers and wild -- wild claims. that is not going to happen. >> jennifer: you know what is interesting -- i imagine, peter -- i'm
of a certain type of economics that governor kasich espouses that mr. romney would of course, follow. so i think there's that factor in ohio you have to remember. ohio next to wisconsin was the calderon of this battle between workers trying to have -- >> jennifer: you think the residual battle will carry forward until november? that emotion that people felt? >> i think so. >> jennifer: i want to get you into something more specific because this is being played right now in ohio, advertisement that romney is running on tv. take a listen. >> policies of the current administration's got is attacking my livelihood. >> they're wanting to close these mines down. >> we have 250 years of coal. why wouldn't we use it? utility bills are up. people wonder how they're going to have a brighter future if they can't see how they can make it to the end of the next month. >> jennifer: very interesting because coal is an industry that's a union industry. is president obama to blame for coal industry layoffs? will that ad be effective?
missouri. democrat. caller: good evening. to mr. romney, given the current issues related to education, health care, the economy, including unemployment and housing prices, all the issues that matter to the most americans who have struggled in the toughest times we have seen in our lifetimes, what would it take to get the romney campaign focused on speaking in detail rather than attempting to -- >> thank you. esau that we lost our connection with our guest. we have about five for six or minutes in this part -- you can see we have lost our connection with our guest. we have about five for six minutes in this part until our next program. here is a tweet -- why and obama bring the troops somebody had total control over congress for the first two years of his presidency? >> our next caller is eighth republican. -- a republican. caller: i would ask about energy independence. in america, [inaudible] >> thank you for your call. matthew is watching us in tucson. what would you ask? caller: i live in arizona. we are scheduled to lose our processing and distribution center. i would ask both cand
. this from the "new york times." it says, "mr. romney's team has concluded that debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers he has memorizened and has been tracksing on aides since august." now, they're right debates are about moments but ain an amusin image. mitt romney sitting in a room peppering them with zingers. i would like to be on the wall hearing that. >> not about zingers, serious substantive policy. and in "the washington post" showing a virtual dead heat with the president and mitt romney. obama with a slight edge. 49-47%. but also in this survey, it delves down into the expectations game for this debate. what can you tell me about those numbers, peter? >> reporter: despite what chris christie said, and that is sort of another mixed message coming out of the romney campaign, romney is winning the expectations game if you look at the polls. more likely to win the debate, president obama 55%. mitt romney just 31% of likely voters expect him to win the debate. that's a good place to be for him going in there, but like you said, there's a lot of
. >> stop lying, mr. president. >> lying? >> yeah! >> what's the lie? >> governor romney is not talking about tax cuts for the wealthy. he says that the wealthy will take just as much under the romney administration as they paid today. >> you can see jersey governor chris christie saying what mitt romney has been claiming, say that this barack obama ads are false. he wants to correct the record on obamacare and medicare, et cetera. very, very tough stuff f. mr. romney can accuse him of lying, that will be a very, very sharp moment. both sides trying to downplay the expectations in all of this, with the belief that if you can set the barlow enough, either one of them can jump over it. >> jamie: we have seen a lot of that. on the sunday shows today. carl, you have been to a number of debates. any inside intel on the keys that the viewers should be watching for from home on wednesday night? >> personality. whether or not each of these men are engaged, empathetic with the voter concerns and have sharp, catchy answers. the battle over facts and who scores the most points or lands the most bl
with that, mr. romney is not early in the game anymore and two all your polls are going down, down, down. and you're in big trouble. we'll take a look at the polls and a whole lot more here on the "full court press." first, let's start out with the latest today's current news update, lisa ferguson standing by in los angeles. good morning lisa. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. it is a pretty light day on the campaign trail for president obama. he has just one event in virginia beach. mitt romney though is sticking to his new campaign strategy of getting himself out there as much as possible. he is also in virginia this morning speaking at the exact same time as the president but from springfield. he then heads to a fund-raiser in d.c. and another event in pennsylvania. romney is coming off three separate interviews last night with three separate television stations. that all went in three very different direction. romney talked everything from character assassination to his massachusetts healthcare reform an
is it that mr. romney proposes doing? that's what's -- >> the question to you, general, with all respect. >> that's okay. >> what's the president of the united states doing? romney wants to be president but the president is the president. >> president's working with allies in the region to try to provide hue human taryn assistance. working with groups to try to form a legitimate and recommendsed political opposition. working to -- with others to try to hold down the delivery of heavy weapons to the region. working with other allies that are providing some assistance and some information on who the syrian resistance leaders are so it's humanitarian, political, diplomatic. it's everything we can do short of using military force. i'm sure the military options have been looked at. an air campaign has been looked at. taking out the ground defense. both of those are major military operations. they involve war. they don't have -- they don't have strong support from nato allies. it's more go it alone for the united states. >> all right. >> an they don't seem to be that effective in addressing th
new jersey governor chris christie, because he was setting the bar high for mr. romney. listen. >> he's going to come in wednesday night, lay out his vision for america, he's going to contrast what his view is with what the president's record is, the president's view for the future and this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> upside down is what he says. in just a few minutes we're going to be talking about wednesday night's debate and the president's preparations with brad woodhouse, communications director for the democratic national committee. first some of the other stories making news in d.c. getting ready for wednesday's debate coverage is john berman. hey, john, good morning. >> we're doing debate prep just like the candidates here in washington. start overseas, soledad. the taliban taking responsibility for an attack in eastern afghanistan that killed at least 14 people. civilians, police, and three nato soldiers. officials say the suicide bomber targeted a joint patrol using a motorcycle packed with explosives. this attack comes a day after
of whom i met three, and mrs. romney, whom i met, and they are an ordinary american family. they are just -- imagine five boys running around at the age of 6, and that makes you very ordinary. he didn't kill any of them, that's a start. [laughter] i think that will come across, and all of the efforts to bring up the money and the house and the horse and all of that stuff, i don't think americans care if it comes across one on one how much money. nelson rockefeller won in new york again and again and again and again and again, and his fortune dwarf that. there are a lot of rich democrats that this issue doesn't come up. kerry did not lose because he married the heinz fortune. he lost because he was not particularly approachable. [laughter] i think that what you're concerned about is right to be concern the about, but i think as people get to know the governor, and especially the governor in the context of the family, they will believe he is, in fact, sharing their values. if not their pain of financial necessary sigh, their values. i'm confident about that actually. yes, sir? >> thank you
. obama but free for the telling by mr. romney is that as the u.s. unemployment rate hit 9.5% in june 2009 and a shocked public was looking for a response, the new president introduced the affordable care act for the next few months. when mr. obama signed the law into march in 2010, the unemployment rate was 9.8%. if an opponent wanted to describe this in partisan terms, he might say that the president signed an entitlement dream while the economy burned. >> i think there's a certain spin on it. i think the president's argument would be when you become president, you usually get a couple years to get your big things done. health care was something he identified early on as a big thing that needed to get done, and he was going to use his political capital to get that done. and obviously in retrospect, i think we would all agree the economic recovery has been slower, but he felt the stimulus program and other things he was doing would be enough to start this economy on the right trend, and it did, just not as quickly as we would have all liked. >> joe? >> well, listen, i think daniel henning
closing down shop. mrs. ann romney will join us tomorrow night. you don't want to miss that. make sure gou to greta wire.com and let us know what you thought about tonight's show. go to greta wire.com. time in cable news kicks off right now. >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on. tonight -- >> the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> the president has not drawn us further away from the nuke leer round of attack, iran is closer to having a weapon. >> bill: is president obama weak or strong in protecting americans from the iranian nuclear threat? we'll hear both sides so you can decide. >> i want you to remember that the house they were standing in, the house my family has the privilege of living in, that house was built in part by slaves. >> bill: why is the first lady invoking images of slavery to make a point? we will tell you. >> we have a -- (bleep). >> bill: has madonna totally lost it? what the heck she talk being? we'll show you one of the most bizarre displays we've ever seen. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. "the fac
a third party. i voted the man not the party. when i look at what mr. romney is doing and mr. ryan is doing as opposed to what i already know about president obama, i am proud of him -- the things he is talking about as opposed to what they are talking about is about the rich getting richer as opposed to all of us being in this together. i do not have a problem paying more tax to help somebody out right now. i got where i was because of what people did prior to me. if a democrat or a republican needs a little help now, are we going to be americans and help each other out? are we going to play the race card in some situations, the money card the culture card? america is better than that. i want to see us take all of the good of everybody. host: thank you for the call. next is said joining us from georgia. the independent third party line. caller: i would like to make three or four quick points. as far as the a row corp. -- the irrelevancy of third parties, ralph nader was very relevant and florida. to the point about -- i am a libertarian. ross perot is the data kind of got me liste
, not the president is nois problem. the country is out of control. if mr. romney becomes president, nothing will happen. there will block all of the bills. as they have done. nothing will change in this country for a long, long time. unless the american people realize the government is dysfunctional, it has been and will be for a long, long time. host: back to our show sunday. ill stein joiningepste us. we have extended an invitation to gary johnson. he has not confirmed yet. but that is our show for sunday if you want to take a listen. debates start of next week. that is our lineup for sun. a few more minutes of calls. this is south bend, indiana. al, on our line for independents. caller: the guy from carolina talking about blacks. we need a homeland. we need to get away from this garbage. when i was a kid, black people need a homeland to get away from you guys. that is the whole thing. we can have our own land. the blacks who want to live here, let them live here. but we want to get away from you guys. you guys have always been racist to us. so i do not care who gets in office. i believe
that obama does. you only hear from bush. you don't hear that mr. romney is a break kind man who has spent his life in serving people. he is a very foreign businessman and he is not responsible -- he is a very fine businessman and he is not responsible for sending tough overseas. thank you very much. host: that as a lot to work with rich guest: what we have seen a couple of sundays ago -- our ambassador to the united nations, susan rice, went on television and try to say the attacks in libya was inspired by an anti-muslim trailer on youtube. they determined in 24 hours that was a terrorist attack. yet they went out on the network news and made the claim that this was caused by something else. that is the problem is that we would simply say i don't expect the network news media to come out and say everything i would say as a conservative american. i would like them to ask questions. we have had a couple of reporters at jay carney asking questions. the problem we have to tell is that president obama has not given a press conference in months. mitt romney was attacked for holding a press conf
called prosperity tax is going to solve these nuanced problems that mr. romney in that secret tape recording said he didn't think he could solve any of these problems. the poll numbers are a result of that reporting. when people see him speaking candidly when he does not think he's being reported he says that he cannot solve these foreign policy criseses and he says that he didn't care about almost 50% of the american public. >> all right richard socarides, margaret hoover thank you for joining us. on "starting point" you can talk about the quinnipiac poll. we did promise our viewers we would do that. thank you for this lovely dialogue. >>> with israel and iran moving closer to the brink of war and anti-american sentiment on the rise around the world it seems all anyone wants to talk about is the nfl replacement refs. the president and mitt romney both weighing in on the blown call monday night that cost the green bay packers a win. cnn political director mark preston live from washington. this is what everyone wants to talk about, the nfl's labor dispute with its referees is turni
this on television or read a newspaper -- ask yourself, if what mr. romney and mr. ryan are saying about obama and bided our true and medicare, why would the american medical association and doris our policy? why would the american hospital association and most important, why would aarp endorse this? [applause] that have no credibility. on this issue. secondly, what they don't tell you is equally important to what they tell you. they don't tell you what they would do about medicare. the first thing they would do if they took the action they are proposing to take were they to win, you would eliminate the new benefits, $800 more for prescription drugs, which visits, it would also move medicare trust fund insolvency to 2016, three years from now. the third the is what they don't want to talk about. they don't want to tell you they are for medicare. they are for a voucher-care. they say it will affect anybody on medicare now. it will not kick in for 10 years. if you are 55 years old, it will kick in. a couple of years ago, the intellectual right laid down a proposal -- paul ryan introduced a prop
must is the key here because nobody really knows what that means. even mr. obama might not know. but it sounds tough. however, mitt romney isn't buying it. >> the president has not drawn us further away from a nuke leer iran. in fact, iran is closer to having a weapon, closer to having nuclear capability than when he took office. this is the greatest failure of his presidency. >> bill: in a time economy is dominating the campaign in the usa, it's worth noting that we americans remain in danger from muslim fanatics like ahmadinejab. and that danger must, note the word, be dealt with. according to a new rasmussen poll, 45% of likely machine voters believe u.s. muslim relations are worse now than four years ago. just 18% say relations are better. that would seem to indicate a failure in the obama foreign policy. yet the president will point to the did he say mation of al-qaeda and the killing of bin laden to persuade voters he is not soft on the jihad. to be fair to president obama, opinions about his muslim outreach are inconclusive at this point. most americans don't want war wit
is playing mr. obama in romney's mock debate sessions. with the two candidates off the trail tuesday, their number two men picked up the slack. campaigning in north carolina vice president biden drew some attention with these comments, discussing the gop ticket's tax plan. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> reporter: the romney campaign pounced on the word buried. campaigning in iowa, paul ryan fired back. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> reporter: later, the vice president did some damage control, clarifying his remarks. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported. >> reporter: 24 hours before the start time of tonight's debate late tuesday, conservatives began circulating a 2007 speech by then candidate obama speaking to an african-american audience about victims of hurricane katrina. fox news hos

in ohio liked the message the president delivered on jobs there yesterday. polls show mr. obama widening his lead in the state. mitt romney also in the buckeye state telling audiences he cares about the people of america. romney acknowledging that some of the polls show him behind president obama. but he pointed to the first presidential debate less than a week from now as a potential turning point in the race. >>> in new york it was a rough ride for nearly 200 people aboard a brazilian jetliner from rio. they were bracing for a crash landing at kennedy airport because the landing gear was stuck sideways. you can see it there. the pilot circled twice before touching down. the nose gear seemed to miraculously straighten itself out just before the plane hit the tarmac. thankfully no one was injured. but some anxious moments aboard that plane. >>> airlines across the country are raking in big profits from what used to be a free service. they're pocketing billions of dollars in baggage fees all coming at the expense of fed up passengers. abc's brandi hitt has the story. >> reporter: checking

attacks because mr. obama just wants to continue his conversation with the american people. but romney is still prepping some zingers nonetheless. we may have got an bit of a preview in denver. here's a look. >> we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. what does the president have to say to all of this? he says forward. i think forwarned is a better term. >> see what he did there? the vice presidential nominees have busy schedules today with paul ryan campaigning in iowa and joe biden in north carolina. but nothing on romney's campaign schedule and president obama is just wrapping up some final debate prep in nevada. in ohio, early voting gets underway today. here's a look at some great video of people camping out to be able to cast their vote at the cuyahoga county board of elections. state senator nina turner was very first and said the long line is symbolic of how important voting is in ohio. cleveland mayor frank jackson also showed up for some moral support. so far 32% of republicans
back mitt romney are upset even if the polling is skewed some more than others, but is it detrimental to voters if they see these polls and they think mr. obama is gaining steam, does it drive potential voters away? >> there is bad polling, overly optimistic polling, but there's a mainstream media narrative that the election is over, governor romney has lost in the swing stays are close to double-digit. but it doesn't help our democratic system especially when they have the race somewhat closer than cnbc does. i looked at them, that is my vision. the only way to change the dynamic. dagen: is the time? >> there is time, but it is running out quickly. connell: don't keep it here, that is what dr. marc faber will be saying when he comes on in a few minutes. dagen: and amazon getting into that business, we will have details coming up. here are some of the winners on the s&p 500. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 when i'm trading, i'm so into it, tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 hours can go by before i realize tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 that i haven't even looked away from my screen. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 tdd#: 1-800-34
talk about romney or obama that they generally fill in a lot of things that are off color about romney but nothing whatsoever about mr. obama. everyone has dropped his middle name, you know? hussein. it just seems like he gets a lot of support, whether it's intended or not. host: a lot of facebook comments already on this topic. we will begin with melvin. the lame stream media are a bunch of obama lackeys. those are some of our facebook comments this morning. if you would like to continue the conversation on this topic, facebook.com/cspan. here's "the wall street journal" this morning. swing states a tough sell for romney. according to "the wall street journal"/nbc poll, obama leads in nevada 49% to 47% and in new hampshire and north carolina. two of the three states both think romney a strong run the economy. that is one set of polls. now we have this other set we want to show you quickly. this is from rasmussen. they do a daily tracking poll. for a long time now, they have been showing this race as even. this gets updated daily at about 9:30 a.m. they have obama and romney both up 46
combination of factors with demonstrating effects on mr. gore's campaign. and i guess the question is, can mitt romney pull something that would really kind of just give people a page-turner on, a, his personality, which he doesn't appear to really have one beyond being a really nice person. no, i'm serious. he has to show empathy and sympathy and a connection with people that he hasn't up until now. or, steve rattner, to be more specific about his policies, which many argue he hasn't been very specific nor paul ryan. >> he hasn't been very specific. but i think his bigger problem is the first one you said. that he's got to create some sense of connectivity or relationship with the voters. i think that's really his goal as well as what we were talking about in the earlier segment of trying to bring a clear depiction of obama's policies and the fact they haven't done everything they were supposed to. >> john harwood, can he do that in a debate? is the debate the setting? that would be when you're most clenched and concerned about every word that comes out of your mouth. how do you show the
